Serena Williams surprises tennis players at Dolores Park, plays impromptu match

Serena Williams put down her little dog, laced up her furry boots and borrowed a racket to play a little tennis with strangers at San Francisco's Dolores Park this weekend.

That's exactly what happened in San Francisco Sunday night. when two guys lost their minds when the GOAT walked up to their court.

"Just having a stroll at night and I'm thinking about asking these guys if I could hit with them, just to see their reaction", Williams says in a video shot by her fiancee Alexis Ohanian (co-founder of Reddit) and posted on TMZ.

The incident is captured on Snapchat and shows Williams at first just watching the men's match from outside the courts.

Wouldn't have mattered though. "I think they're in the middle of playing out points".

And with the career feat behind her, she can showcase a rather playful side of her personality on the tennis court.

"I don't have on my Nike's, but these'll work", she told them.

Because Williams didn't warm up, or wear proper footwear, "Don't do this at home", she suggested.

Then, she said she'd play but she didn't have her Nikes.

Serena announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian past year in December.
